Pope Benedict XVI began his summer vacation at Castel Gandolfo July 6. His vacation there will last almost the entire month, during which he will not be holding his usual Wednesday general audience or receiving anyone in private audience, but will be reciting the Angelus prayer on Sundays, as is the usual custom.

The Holy Father plans to fill his time in the same way as many of his past vacations: not so much by resting as by studying, and, in particular, writing his book Jesus of Nazareth. This month, he hopes to make further headway and possibly complete the third and final volume, which will focus on Jesus’ childhood and the years leading up to the beginning of Christ’s preaching — a...READ MORE

GREEN BAY, Wis. (EWTN News) — Attendance is booming at a Wisconsin shrine at the site of the only approved Marian apparition in the United States.

On Dec. 8, 2010, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Bishop David Ricken of Green Bay decreed that the Virgin Mary had appeared to a young Belgian immigrant woman, Adele Brise, three times in October of 1859.

After that, shrine caretaker Karen Tipps said, “the phone was ringing off the hook.”

“Right from Dec. 8 on, we never had a slow time this winter,” she told the Green Bay Press Gazette.

People have come from as far away as Texas, New Orleans and the south Pacific island of Tahiti to pray at the chapel, located 17 miles northeast...READ MORE

MANILA — When Philippine lawmakers return on July 25 for the second session of the 15th Congress, they will continue debates on two reproductive-health bills that would undermine the Catholic culture of the populous Asian nation.

Similar in content, both the House and Senate bills seek to mandate government counseling on artificial contraceptives and promote sexual education for children as early as fifth grade.

Backed by powerful international population-control groups, the bills also recommend two children per family as a way to reduce poverty and foster economic development. The Philippines has a population of more than 90 million, about 82% of whom are Catholic.

The bills are...READ MORE

Robert Redford’s latest film, The Conspirator — released just days after the Sesquicentennial of the attack on Fort Sumter, the Civil War’s start — stirred many childhood memories.

My great-grandmother, Lillian Webster Keane, who was a longtime Washingtonian, frequently spoke about the injustice the film portrays.

Fittingly, The Conspirator opened April 15 — the same day, 146 years earlier, President Abraham Lincoln was celebrating the end of the Civil War.

The bloody conflict that ripped our nation apart for four years, North against South, was now over — ending officially on April 9, 1865, when Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse to Union Gen. Ulysses S....READ MORE

VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News)— Pope Benedict XVI will spend his summer vacation praying, reading and writing, according to his official spokesman.

“I was also struck in the past, talking to the Pope’s personal secretary, who said to me very naturally: ‘The best way for the Pope to rest is for him to study and write about theology, sacred Scripture, because they are topics that fascinate him,’” said Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi in a July 7 interview with Vatican Radio.

The Pope left July 7 for his summer residence of Castel Gandolfo, a tiny hilltop village overlooking Lake Albano, just 15 miles southeast of Rome. The town has been the traditional holiday spot for popes since the 15th...READ MORE
